Atedo Peterside is not a green horn when it comes to national political discourse in Nigeria.
The chairman of Stanbic IBTC weighed into the recent #EndSARS and various comments by social media influencers. He looked into blocking people on social media platforms.
Peterside is also the chairman of ANAP Foundation.
In an interview with Arise TV, three of his quotes where notable as presented below:
- “As a bank CEO, nobody can tell me to block someone’s account because you don’t like their political views; I won’t comply.”
- “The youth have learned some lessons from this incident. You’ll be most effective when you link your demands with political activism.”
- “Nigerian youth must start now to make #EndSARS come to life in 2023”
